This squat 14 m high cylindrical tower watches over the old harbor from high above on the edge of Karaalioǧlu Park. Built in the 2nd century no one is quite sure what its main function was, but most agree it acted as a watchtower or lighthouse over the busy port below.
Now it’s a fantastic spot to watch sunset or get that all-important panoramic view over the old harbor area. The park itself is a tranquil, flower-filled spot to escape the city streets and prime picnicking territory.
